Whey at last we've getting a nice new bus shelter at the stop adjacent ti Earth Balance....aa griped on aboot for a few yeors,not for mesel,but for the benefit of the client workers of the Horticultural therapy unit,who aav waatched for seventeen winters,huddling together in the pouring rain,and snow,when we've had snow...like!...frozen ti the bone after working ootside,and stanning waiting for late buses!

Noo,aam wondering if we can get back wor shelter wat was tekkin oot at the entrance of the new Proton Beam Therapy Unit building site,and currently in use by the contract workers onsite,as a smoking shelter,INSIDE THE SECURITY FENCING AROUND THE SITE!!

It's oot of sight of the public eye,hidden behind the reet high fence,but aav got pics and video of it standing there,when it should be re-instated where it has been promised.....on the opposite side of the road ti the one that's just been put in afore-mentioned!!

As a little further gripe,wor new shelter is missing the nice "East Bedlington Parish Council" decals at each end,wat let's visitors to Earth Balance knaa where they are!!

Aam gaana get onti the Coonty Cooncil for info as ti wat's happening!!

    • A big-hearted donation by one of South East Northumberland’s largest employers has enabled local football club, Bedlington Terriers FC, to provide its players, staff and visitors with rapid emergency response should it ever be needed.
      Lynemouth Power Station has gifted the community club with a life-saving heart defibrillator which will now be installed at the Welfare Park ground. If deployed within three to five minutes of a cardiac arrest, such equipment could potentially increase the chances of someone surviving a heart attack from six to 74 per cent. Each minute without CPR and defibrillation also reduces a patient’s survival rate by between seven and ten per cent.*
      The Northern League Division Two club is home to seven teams and over 80 footballers from senior players to an under 6 ‘tots’ team. Along with daily training sessions and match attendances, the club sees hundreds of people visiting the ground on a weekly basis therefore the defibrillator has been very well received by all.
      Rowan Edwards, Commercial Director of Bedlington Terriers FC, commented, “This is a vital piece of first aid equipment and we are extremely grateful to Lynemouth Power Station for their kind donation. Given the number of on-site staff, players training each week and visitors to the ground, it is essential that our trained staff have instant access to life-saving equipment in case of emergencies. It will mean a lot to everyone here at the club as well as the local community, so we’re very grateful for the power station’s support.”
      Janet Mole from Lynemouth Power Station added, “Having these devices installed in popular public places and venues is so important, so rather than just donate to the fundraising effort, we decided to purchase the equipment outright on behalf of the club. As a local employer, it is important that community initiatives like this are well supported so we’re delighted to hand over the defibrillator to all at the club.”
